திருமூல நாயனார் அருளிய திருமந்திரம்
வாயும் மனமும் கடந்த மனோன்மனி
பேயுங் கணமும் பெரிதுடைப் பெண்பிள்ளை
ஆயும் அறிவும் கடந்த அரனுக்குத்
தாயும் மகளும் நல் தாரமுமாமே.
thirumUla nAyanAr aruLiya thirumanthiram
vAyum manamum kaDan^tha manOnmani
pEyum gaNamum perithuDaip peNpiLLai
Ayum aRivum kaDan^tha aranukkuth
thAyum makaLum n^al thAramumAmE.
Explanation of song:
The manOnmani, Who is beyond word (mouth) and thought (mind),
the Girl Who very much has the ghosts and gaNas,
to the hara, Who is beyond the intellect that analyses,
is the mother, daughter and nice wife too.
1. This thirumanthiram beautifully expounds the relationship
between shiva and shakti. This Divine Couple is not like
any other couple we recognize. They are unique. They are not
two different entities. It is the same Supreme. That parashiva
becomes shakti which in turn becomes the very same parashiva.
This is the creation and reduction. During sustenance they
perform roles as if They are different. (shiva as the Doctor
performing the operation of re-orienting the soul towards
Bliss and shakti as the Anesthetist putting the soul into
illusion during operation and relieving from the illusion
at the completion of operation - once the soul re-orients)
